Vocabulary Words


Our vocabulary assignments this year will be completed online at http://www.vocabulary.com. There, I will build vocabulary lists (posted below) that I would like you all to practice. Your responsibility is to use the time I give you in class and also some time at home to review, practice, and master the words on this and other lists I give you.

You will receive credit (RP in the JN) based on how much of each list you complete. I may also periodically quiz you on the vocabulary for each unit at the beginning of class. These will also be a chance for you to get RP.

Resource Points for completing vocabulary assignments will be assigned according to the chart below.
